In the communications media the church finds a precious aid for spreading the Gospel and religious values, for promoting dialogue, ecumenical and inter-religious cooperation, and also for defending those solid principles which are indispensable for building a society which respects the dignity of the human person and is attentive to the common good.  The church willingly employs these media to furnish information about itself and to expand the boundaries of evangelization, of catechesis and of formation.”  —Pope John Paul II, February 21, 2005
